Both countries should show consistency, political will and positivity to engage in a sustained dialogue that aims at resolving all outstanding issues including that of Kashmir, Abdullah said.

He said although the resumption of talks was a positive sign, both countries should not sideline Kashmiri stakeholders and leadership in any structured engagement as this would have adverse political implications in the Valley.
